TeleFund & WinterPledge

KET is proud to bring you the best in informative, engaging, and entertaining broadcast programs throughout the year. TeleFund and WinterPledge are KET’s on-air membership drives that provide funds to purchase and produce programs you enjoy year-round.

Tell KET what programs matter to you with your gift

During these drives in December and March, KET invites you to tell us with your gift the programs you value most; your vote then helps determine the new broadcast season and budget. This is the easiest way to renew your support — or become the newest member of the KET family. You also receive exclusive thank-you gifts, including tickets to concerts and other unique KET experiences.
